Manhangjae Pass (Hanja: 晩項재) is located at the point where three areas (Gohan-ri, Gohan-eup in Jeongseon County, Gurae-ri, Sangdong-eup in Yeongwol County, and Hyeoldong, Taebaek City) in Gangwon Province all meet. It is located about 1,200 to 1,300 meters above sea level.
Manhangjae refers to the area where the slope of Mount Hambaek (1,567m, South Korea's 6th highest mountain) rests for a while before going down towards Mount Taebaek (1,172m) in the Center of Taebaek City to the south or Mount Jangsan (1,409m) in Naedeok-ri, Sangdong-eup, Yeongwol County to the southwest. In Korea, this is the highest mountain path accessible to motor vehicles. When driving to Manhangjae at night, one can see stars right above one's head.
